Music: Playa - Gravy Train



Guess what song Playa sampled this track on, and I might just post the song for everyone as a bonus with the interview that's going to be conducted tonight!

EDIT: Yung Major got it correct! The track is "Gravy Train", which is undoubtedly the most popular unreleased Playa song. A lot of people heard a 2 minute snippet of the song from the Def Soul Sampler back in 2001 and assumed it was produced by Timbaland (which probably contributes to the popularity of the track, just because Timbaland has a huge following himself). However, the track was NOT produced by Timbaland, but actually by Keybeats (the people who did most of Aaliyah's last album).

We spoke about this track during the interview we had a couple of days ago. I'm not sure if it's on any of the ones I've posted yet, but I can tell you right now that this was going to be Playa's first single off their second album. There were also considerations in putting a young Ludacris on the track.

And like promised, here is the song in full CDQ. Another exclusive for all of you.




Oh yeah, I've also added a Music Centre (in which you can find on the left side of the screen under "Additional Links"). In there, you will find some songs that I have posted on this blog along with the full 2 hour interview DJ Slam and I did with Neeze.

This song was recorded while we were in Austrailia working on the Aaliyah album. The whole concept came because everthing over there was all good. When I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING! Shout out to Rapture and E. Seats!
